The Facts

from by Darren Jilks



Just take a look at the facts
I think I want you, maybe
How'd you get where you are?
Did it get you far?

Some kind of order that we're meant to fall in. I don't know, I heard something low to the ground. She wasn't there, I don't think, but it was hard to tell. Seconds, not minutes, I was there. It might be a succession of this, I wonder. Maybe this is all there is, and instead of worrying about the next ending, try to make the most of the space in between. I need to see the end before I even try, I'll live without deadlines. Will you come with me into the next stretch of time? I'm ready to escalate, and you seem worth the shake. In you, I see flashes of a Summer when I was first hit by the perfume of desire. Beyond the exterior, I see an animal soul, kindred. How do I bring mine to the surface, so that you might recognise the soul in me?

I think this is a story best told by time.
